A Star Is Born has had her chances and has been looking one-paced so looks vulnerable to an improver. Amber Romance will have come on nicely for her run at Navan last week and should be kept on the right side while Ebaniya is much better than she showed here last time where she was soon beaten despite starting a short-priced favourite. LAVINIAD did well to overcome problems at the start on her debut at Gowran and managed to get to the front briefly in the closing stages before passed by Calibrate. That should have brought her to concert pitch and she looks the one to be on.
